International Program

Mount Clear College welcome students from all over the world.

International students enrich the diverse cultural mix at the College. We value the role played by our international students in the day-to-day life of our school through their pursuit of excellence in academic achievement, in the Arts, Leadership and in other cultural pursuits.


Our international students thrive in an environment that encourages academic success as well as the development of the whole person; we aim to produce well-rounded young adults. International students have a record of outstanding academic achievement at our College.

We offer our international students strong welfare support, a broad and challenging curriculum, as well as activities and services beyond the classroom, in a safe and secure environment to ensure that they have a rewarding and memorable experience

The College has an excellent team of caring professionals who look after the needs of our international students. Our homestay families are an integral part of the care we provide. Our caring and experienced coordinators lead a team of teachers who guide, educate and encourage our students to settle into their new school and achieve their goals. Students are monitored and supported throughout their time at Mount Clear College and parents are regularly informed of their child’s progress and wellbeing.

Our international students continue with tertiary studies after they finish the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) studies at Mount Clear College. The University of Melbourne, Monash University and Australian National University are popular tertiary destinations for our students. Our College is very proud that two of our students were awarded Victorian International Student of the Year awards with one student being named the overall ambassador for International Students in Victoria, the highest honour an international student can achieve.


All homestay families who provide accommodation to Mount Clear College international students have been thoroughly screened and briefed to meet the standard of accommodation provision stipulated by the Department of Education and Training. The families provide a supportive environment where students feel safe and welcome. Homestay families are carefully chosen to ensure that the student has the best possible experience of life in Australia. They provide practical and emotional advice to the students. Student homestay families are visited twice a year by our home stay coordinator.
